Statement from Hillary for America Senior Policy Adviser Jake Sullivan on Trump’s ISIS Comments

NEW YORK—(ENEWSPF)—August 11, 2016.  On Thursday, Hillary for America senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s false claim that President Obama founded ISIS:

“This is another example of Donald Trump trash-talking the United States.  It goes without saying that this is a false claim from a presidential candidate with an aversion to the truth and an unprecedented lack of knowledge.  What’s remarkable about Trump’s comments is that once again, he’s echoing the talking points of Putin and our adversaries to attack American leaders and American interests, while failing to offer any serious plans to confront terrorism or make this country more secure.”
